Vice President (Commercial), Commercial Vehicles, Tata Motors, R T Wasan said, "As a leader in the Indian commercial vehicle space, Tata Motors has always been at the forefront in introducing first-of-its-kind innovative initiatives and with the truck racing, we conceptualized the T1 Racer Program, held last year for Indian truck drivers, for the very first time."
The TRP training structure was designed uniquely, since race craft training is to be imparted to truck drivers, who had no previous exposure to track driving. Hence, the course material has been designed to make it driver-friendly, so it could be grasped by the drivers, and that too, in limited time.
